Money — Dangers, Disappoint, Delights

Ecclesiastes 5:10-20  (ID: 2648)

While searching for the meaning of life, the Teacher in Ecclesiastes discovered that wealth brought burdens and anxiety rather than satisfaction. He asked what benefit money might afford, or what advantage it offered. His conclusion? Not much!—until, that is, we acknowledge that all good gifts, and our ability to enjoy them, come from God. Alistair Begg teaches that for believers, the best life is yet to come. In the meantime, living in Christ changes the source of our hope and increases enjoyment of even a simple life.

10He who loves money will not be satisfied with money, nor he who loves wealth with his income; this also is vanity.
